The Whitby Hotel NYC Suite.png

Located on West 56th Street at Fifth Avenue, three blocks south of Central Park, the new Whitby Hotel is set to open on Monday, March 20th. A Firmdale Hotel, the beautiful property features 86 individually-designed rooms and suites across 16 floors. All with floor-to-ceiling windows, marble or granite bathrooms — and as if it doesn't get better, 14 have their own private terraces! 

There will also be The Whitby Bar and Restaurant, drawing room, orangery and courtyard as well as several private events spaces and a 130-seater state-of-the-art cinema. Open all-day, the Whitby Bar is a rich, colorful, airy room with high ceilings, an impressive 30 foot pewter bar and beautifully upholstered banquettes. Tall warehouse-style windows and doors lead through to a sunny orangery with vaulted ceilings and skylight, bathing it in natural light. The bar has a collection of hanging baskets originating from different areas of England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland. There is a story behind each one and every basket has a particular purpose. The Orangery displays a spectacular wall of 40 beautifully crafted vessels lit from within, each with a different landmark New York building or bridge etched into it. 

Expect the ever-so-stylish hotel to be the newest hot spot for it all: be it an afternoon tea, a private film screening, or just all-day lounging...
